    Why only Holi, this recipe will be a hit the moment it is out from kadhai. Tried yesterday evening for my daughter. But trust me it was over within minutes by all family members.
    I had to promise it to make it today also as batter got over that time. So I’m ready to garner all the accolades from everyone while having the satisfaction that I’m serving healthy food to my loved ones instead of junk food. Loved the creativity of utilizing the dosa batter in a different way.
    Keep rolling out such recipes. It would be fun to relish them at this time of home quarantine for a long period.
